Discipleship Huddles

Huddles Logo
A huddle is a recognizable part of almost any sport. It’s where the team comes together to go over two things – (1) the game situation and (2) the next play. Our Discipleship Huddles work the same way. It’s 6-10 people gathering regulary to ask two questions – (1) What is God saying? (2) What is He inviting me to do about it?

The foundation of faith is the Gospel – Jesus’ completed work to save us through His death and resurrection. That work is done and God loves you just as you are… and He also loves You too much to leave you there. In regards to the God’s Truth, the Bible says, “Whatever you have learned…heard…or seen – put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:9).

Huddles meet through the school year (September through May). They meet for various modules that are generally three weeks each. Modules are such things as your Spiritual Gifts, a Family Mission Statement, Prayer, or a particular book/section of the Bible. Each module…in fact each meeting…has the goal of equipping participants to put their faith into practice. New participants can join a Huddle at the start of each module. On the fourth week, all Huddle participants meet together in the Sanctuary for a Celebraction. At this time, those who have been working on the “My Faith Story” module share all or portion of it. And we celebrate storylines of what God has been up to in each Huddle! For more information or to join a huddle, contact Pastor Joel at

Children Ministries

Our Ministry to Children Exists to Proclaim the Power and Mighty Wonders of the Lord to the Next Generation

St. Paul values children. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Our entire ministry is centered on this truth, from our preschool and elementary school, to Sunday school and Vacation Bible School (VBS) St. Paul invests in children.

We believe in the power of parental influence and the role of the church to support parents. By God’s design, parents are the primary teachers of the faith, and the greatest influence on children. The job of the church is to support parents in their role. We do this through our programs and people.

Sunday School

Sunday School is a great opportunity for kids to gather with their peers under the instruction of caring adults to learn about Jesus. Think of Sunday School as the place where we teach the Bible, its stories and truths, and the home as the place where Biblical values and faith is lived out. So, at Sunday School kids learn about creation, and at home, they experience creation by playing outside, or going to the zoo with the family. At Sunday school kids learn about forgiveness and God’s grace, and at home they practice forgiveness and grace in the loving support of their families. For more information about Sunday School, contact Pastor Joel at

Bible Arrival

Everyone should have their own Bible, and learn how to read it. Our annual class we call “Bible Arrival” is a chance for 2nd graders on up, to learn about the Bible and then to receive their first Bible. This class is all about families as parents are included and they learn how to use the Bible in the home, and how to bless their children with God’s Word. For more information about Bible Arrival, contact Pastor Joel at

Vacation Bible School

Every summer, we take one week and go all out for children. Typically the first full week in June, our Vacation Bible school is for children 3 years-old up through rising 5th graders. By the time students hit 6th grade, they become part of the leadership team of VBS, and they start helping the next generation.
